Hi Vinod

The screen shots might need to be changed, as thos product is now called SSIS and not DTS

Thanks

Vinod,

Good work :-). Its better to update the screenshots which refer to the name "DTS", as now there is nothing called DTS in SQL Server 2005, as you know its SSIS. I felt this change needs to be done, coz it might be confusing to a newbie.

Cheers..

I agree with Sudheer, Its been a long time since Microsoft change the name to SSIS (In Beta 2 may be even late beta 1). So to show screen shots that no longer exist is a bit misleading for some folks.

It is an important artical. Yet, it is written mostly for someone that olready know the components.

In The article, the "Raw File Source" may need to be replaced with "Flat File Source". If I copy the content form event viewer to a text file and designate it as a "Raw File Source" in the Data Flow Diagram, SSIS gives an error. However the same text file works fine when designated as a "Flat File Source". In fact, you have mentioned it as a "Flat File Source" in the diagram in your example but in the paragraph above the diagram, you have mentioned it as "Raw File Source". May be it's a typo. However, the article is great, very informative and to-the-point. Great work.


Kindest Regards,

M Suresh Kumar

Maybe for a programmer SSIS is a big improvement over DTS, but for a normal user who just wants to dump the data from a table, it's overly complicated.

I have to agree... Things I used to know how to do in DTS I find to be a major chore in SSIS. I miss DTS... Would have been happier if they had fully supported both. DTS for the simple stuff... SSIS when you need the raw muscle.

I know I can download the DTS designer component for SQL 2K5... but I would like to occasionally make new DTS packages and not just edit old ones.
